Washoe County Sheriff’s Office detectives are requesting the public’s help in identifying two people connected to an early morning armed robbery at a Lemmon Valley convenience store.

On July 23, 2021 Patrol Deputies were called to the 7-Eleven at the 8900 block of Lemmon Drive shortly after 5:00 a.m. for an armed robbery that had just occurred. Two suspects entered the store. One suspect remained by the door while the other approached the clerk pointing, what appeared to be, a weapon at the person demanding money.

The suspects got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect who brandished the weapon is described as a light-skinned, possibly White, male. He was wearing white shoes and a ski mask.

The suspect who was the lookout is described as smaller in nature. The suspect’s race and gender are undetermined. The person is possibly a female or a young adult as witnesses describe them as pre-teen to teenager. The person who stood guard was wearing an orange and/or patterned mask with white shoes.

The duo fled on foot, and may live nearby.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Detective Division at (775) 328-3320 or Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900. Refer to case #WC21-3529.
